"Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination." - Voltaire




This Valentine's Day, celebrate your love through a special forest bathing walk! But you may be disappointed - no baths, no back rubs, and fully clothed.


Forest bathing or shinrin yoku is a wellness practice that takes participants slowly and intentionally through nature. In this Valentine's Day forest bathing walk, you will be facilitated to awaken your senses to deepen your connection with nature, with yourself and with your partner. Using the concepts of forest bathing and injecting the elements of fun and love through nature connection activities, don't be surprised if you discover a new thing or two about yourself and your partner! The forest bathing walk is suitable for both nature-lovers and nature-strangers, and is also suitable for pairs of good friends.


This Valentine's Day forest bathing walk will only take a maximum of 5 couples or pairs. The ticket price includes all materials required for the facilitated activities, take-home momento and light snacks/tea.


Reviews

"I saw another side and perspective of my partner, which I never knew!"


"If you need time out from the concrete jungle and to cleanse your soul, this is for you!"


"Good for de-stressing and great fun!"


More about forest bathing

During forest bathing, we take on a mindful walk of no more than 800 meteres, and this immersive experience in nature provides benefits such as mental rest and rejuvenation. Science and research studies on forest bathing have also quantified the following health benefits - better moods and emotions, increase body immune functions, increase production of anti-cancer proteins, lower stress levels, lower blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure.




FAQs

Am I suitable for forest bathing if I have never hiked nor spent much time outdoors?

Forest bathing is designed to be accessible to everyone of varied fitness and outdoor experience. The walk is conducted at a slow pace and we typically cover no more than 800 m for the entire session. The trail is also mostly level and no significant physical exertion will be required.

Is there a minimum age requirement for this event?

As this forest bathing session is a slow, mindful and contemplative walk, it may not be suitable for children under the age of 13. However, if you think that your child would benefit from the session and would enjoy the pace, he/she is welcome to register as a participant and join us in the session. We are in the midst of developing forest bathing sessions specifically for children, please stay tuned!

What if it rains?

In case of wet weather, we will personally contact you at least 30 minutes before the meeting time to confirm if the walk will proceed, postponed or cancelled.

Are we really walking in a forest?

Forest bathing allows a person to connect with nature. Nature exists outside forests too. City gardens, parks and beaches are some examples where meaningful connection with nature can take place and for you to receive your well-deserved rest.
